A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange, aroma smacks of grapefruit and lime zest, with a slight hint of caramel. Flavour is more grapefruit, citrus pith, soft light mouthfeel and a long drying pithy bitter finish. Quality brew. Would be excellent on cask I bet

In bottiglia da 33cl. Colore giallo dorato, piuttosto limpida, schiuma bianca, fine e abb persistente. Aroma di fieno, erba appena tagliata, resinoso poi in secondo piano del fruttato, ananas. Al palato corpo watery, scorre veloce con un leggero miele millefiori seguito da un taglio erbaceo, secco, resinoso e appena fruttato.

Great low ABV pale ale. Tropical fruit aroma giving way to a sharp grapefruit bitter finish. While the low ABV would suggest a sessionable beer, the intense bitterness will strip your palate bare after too many. Sounds like a challenge to me!

PotjeBier (1973) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2015
On tap @ In De Wildeman, sample size glass. Clear, straw blonde/pale yellow color. White head. Aroma’s: malty sweet, grain/malt, refreshing fruit, citrus/tropical fruits. Sweetish, grainish and hop-aromatic retronasal. Flavor: rather bitter, almost acidic. Light bodied, but not too thin. Long bitter finish. Nice!

L’étiquette donnait des indices de Stout et pourtant onn peut lire Pale Ale tout en bas et c’est bien de ça dont il s’agit. Bière franche à l’amertume sincère et d’une simplicité élégante. J’aime vraiment bien Buxton.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2015 Prima biertje. Zachte ale met een wat bittere nasmaak en zeker geen hoogvlieger.

Draught, Holy Etruria. Pale yellow body. Thin white head. Clean and crisp, quite dry. A bit thin, but pleasant enough. Not Buxton’s best.

Bottle from Marks And Spencer (!) Pours cloudy and golden. Great aroma. Lots of citrusy hops. Very resinous. Bit of tropical fruit. Lovely creamy, carbonation. Taste is tangy citrus. Bit of mango. Very bitter. Maybe a tad too much for me here but impressive none-the-less. Long lasting, mouth coating finish. Great body despite the low abv. Awesome pale ale!
